The Wild Now is an Austin, TX based duo consisting of Taylor Baker and Drew Walker; the two have been creating music since 2013. The duo won American Songwriter’s Sole Performer award in 2014, which allowed them to tour the country playing shows. Most recently, the band played Austin City Limits Music Festival as an unsigned artist, garnering attention from the New York Times, Nylon, and iHeart Media, to name a few.
Thus far, The Wild Now have released two EP’s, ‘Tides’ and ‘Afterglow’. The latter was mixed by Matty Green (Wild Belle, Yeasayer, TV on the Radio). Their songs combine Taylor’s dreamy, yet powerful vocals with Drew’s intricate guitar work to solidify their breezy indie pop sound. Their music also encompasses driving synths and jungle disco-esque guitar work. Influencers such as Local Natives, Phantogram, Sylvan Esso, and Glass Animals shine through on all of the tracks. They have accrued over 2.5 million combined streams, to date.
The band will be recording their first full length album in 2018 with the help of Austin-based producer, Dwight Baker (MISSIO, The Wind and The Wave). Fans can expect even more surprises, twists, and turns on this new album, as the band is always pushing their creative limits. With this upcoming release, the band is ready to be Austin, TX’s latest success story.
